Here's my Week 13 write-up. Becoming quite an expert at falling off my bike. Isca duathlon was great. And other stuff.
Nice one WillCore and a short run for me todayLong swim and a turbo for the morro I thinkGlad things aer looking up today Fraggle ... take it nice n easy
Tough swim tonight, lots of leg and toe cramps -- that doesn't usually happen! Finished the whole hour, though.
Nearly the same as you will8 x 400 swim and then a 10.5 mile run
Good training folks.
My training plans for this weekend have been scuppered by my back deciding to play silly buggers. Happened as I was getting ready to go to the pool yesterday. It was bearable, so I decided I'd still swim but drive the 12 miles to the pool rather than bike. The swim was a disaster since my back didn't want to be straight, so my hips were way too low, and using the pool buoy hurt.So I'm resting until Monday (when the kids go back to school and normal service will resume !), and doing lots of back exercises in the meantime.
Bliddy hell Nursey, are you and Fraggle taking it turns or what !!No training for me today, work followed by the dentist and a lie down in a darkened run
SD - if it is starting to feel better and you don't do anything to make it worse, it will probably be ok, Have you been for a sports massge? That might help sort it out
lots of stretching too
I'm sure you'll do it, Sossige - I was in a similar situation to you and still managed Blackpool without too many dramas last weekend - just remember to enjoy it
Lots of stretching & rollering and cycling gently would be my aim, nothing that is going to overload the calf ie: no heavy gears !!
SD, I'm sure you'll do fine, take it easy and enjoy the day. You've definitely got the fitness, so don't worry about that.
SD ... you'll ne OK ... just enjoy it
Yesterday was my comute day, so just a short day training wise ...
AM - Swim ... drills set
LUNCH TIME - Lumpy run ... just short of 5miles
My (geeky) training dashboard ... for those who are intrested In week 5 of my 20 week prog
Nice going WW.
Swam this morning, a sluggish 19 minute 800m then a couple of 200s. Ran for an hour this evening, did some muddy trails and canal. Lovely. Currently having a pint of banana bread beer. That's one of my 5 a day, yeah?
SD, I've personally found it's better to be a bit undertrained than over. I did my 10 miler last Saturday with a goal of 1:30 but finished in 1:30:19(!!). Darn hills right in the middle. At my current physical fitness level, I think I left everything on the course and it's still a PR.
I've also started using My Fitness Pal with a goal of being under 200 pounds for the first time since....I was 16 maybe? I really have no clue. If I can hit 199, I will be at minus 80. The good thing so far as that my normal diet isn't terrible out of whack so that's been a positive from using the app. I just need to be more careful about the munchies. I go get a drink, for example, and toss my hand in a bag of pretzels or whatever, without thinking about it, way too often. This has me at least paying attention.On the family front, my wife also did the 10 miler, completing the local Triple Crown of Running (5k, 10k, 10 miler), and we're scheduled for a half marathon in a couple weeks. I guess it's getting a bit more serious and maybe she has the bug as last night she asked me to get her some compression calf sleeves for the half. She also asked me to join her for a bike ride which nearly had me fall off my chair. It must have been a funny sight seeing me on my tri bike and her on a mountain bike riding 9 mph.
Planning a 50ish mile ride in the morning then a tri on Sunday, the last of the winter/spring series races near us. 400 yards/16 miles/5K. 19 weeks until IMKY!
Everyone else is very fit and active.This old croc is nipping out to the shop for crisps and dip, for an afternoon in front of the telly watching the Melrose 7s
First centuary ride completed today...now sofa and vino are calling!!
